"Welcome to our inviting home, combining small-town charm with easy access to local amenities in Elmira."

At Chartwell Elmira, safety is our highest priority. We continue to maintain strong infection protocols, including following all government directives and fostering safe social experiences for everyone’s peace of mind.

Chartwell Elmira Retirement Residence is tucked into the charming rural town of Elmira, in mid-Western Ontario. You'll find our traditional retirement community feels like a true family home, thanks to our warm, welcoming atmosphere and our tight-knit group of residents and staff who know one another well. We provide an independent supportive living lifestyle that is personalized to your unique needs and preferences, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

In the heart of Elmira

Home to the largest population of Mennonites in Canada, Elmira combines the friendliness of a small town with a rich rural history, with enough shopping, dining, and entertainment options to rival large cities. Located on Snyder Avenue, our retirement home is within close walking and driving distance of many convenient amenities and services: retail shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, banks, liquor stores, places of worship and pharmacies. We are also just a 15-minute drive away from the celebrated St. Jacob's Farmers' Market, Canada's largest year-round market featuring farm-fresh foods, crafts, and antiques.

A vibrant community setting

Our small, inviting residence boasts a spacious single-floor bungalow layout designed for easy mobility and socialization. In addition, the living experience of our residents is elevated thanks to our own well-manicured walking paths around the building, where you can enjoy peaceful strolls and our lovely outdoor patio that further adds to our comfortable, family home feel. Indoors, you'll discover spacious amenities and a wide range of optional life enrichment experiences for a more fulfilling and active social life. Our home also boasts a fitness centre, tuck shop, games room, art studio, chapel, and much more!

We're proud to have many long-standing staff, all of whom are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and forging close relationships with you so they can anticipate your needs and foster a sense of family.


To help you feel safe and supported, our Care Assist Program—an offering of à la carte wellness services and all-inclusive care packages—further provides you with the flexibility to add or remove services. This empowers you to create a customized care plan that meets your unique needs, preferences and abilities so you can feel your best each and every day.
